The Truth About Sex
This evening it was CSU Professor Jerry Callahan from the College of Veterinary Medicine, Department of Microbiology, Immunology and Pathology & sometimes the English department.
Jerry with some hand-outs
"When it comes to sex, it's not all black and white." The evening hand-outs were illustrations from this artical taken from the New England Journal of Medicine. WARNING! They are a bit graphic, so be warned!
The lecture was at Dempsey's in Old Town Fort Collins which has been a mystery to us because whenever we pass by Dempsey's at night, the place looks dead. We usually see just the bartender talking to the kitchen help and NO CUSTOMERS! The Science Cafe packed them in, but when the lecture was over, the place was vacant! Very strange.

Nobody told me there was going to be math
They said there was going to be pie!
Did you know that in 430 BC, Hippias (460 BC–400 BC) of Elis (in the Peloponnese, Greece), a contemporary of Socrates, discovered the quadratrix, a curve he used for trisecting an angle.
Here we have Dr. Robert Meroney, Emeritus Professor of Engineering at CSU presenting his multimedia tribute to all that is pi; the history, humor, poems, limericks, and trivia. Of course he meant this pi: π not the other kind. The one that is a number that is about: 3.14159 26535 89793 23846 26433 83279 50288 41971 69399 37510. Not the pie you can eat!
All part of Fort Collins' Poudre River Public Library 'Eclectic Nights' series!
Dr. Meroney likes computer simulations. Check out this lava lamp demo of a fluid model desktop toy.

Larry's Bowling Ball Arsenal
He had finished part of a senior pro bowling tournament in Las Vegas. I never owned a bowling ball, and I assumed that good bowlers owned their own ball and had a nice bag to carry it in. It appears that professional bowlers have bowling ball bags that hold three balls at a time, and they may bring several bags to a tournament! Looks like Larry has at least 15 bowling balls in his trunk!

Arthropod Diversity at the University!
Few people know the location of this museum. It gets moved around a lot! Even the CSU Entomology department website says it's in the Plant Science Building. I found it in the 128 year-old Laurel Hall building, where the international student office is located.
There are millions of specimens here. I chose to look at the order Odonata, or dragonflies and damselflies. I'm sure I'll be back and have a look at Diptera, lepidoptera, and hemiptera.
FYI, We saw C.P.Gillette last year here.

Used furniture, computers, and old lab equipment. A bunch of coffee servers from food service.

What worms eat depends in part on where they live. Worms can live closer to the surface or much deeper underground. On the surface, worms eat a variety of organic materials, such as dead grass and leaves that have fallen from the trees. There are microscopic organisms that live on these leaves. These organisms provide the worm with a variety of algae, fungi and bacteria that are essential for the worm’s diet. OK, that's more than I want to know!

Shrooms with Kevin
...and that they are heterotrophic organisms possessing a chitinous cell wall, the majority of which grow multicellular filaments called hyphae forming a mycelium!

Green Art & Climate Change
We saw various examples of environmental art projects presented by Lynne Hull, and two CSU specialists in environmental science (one of them was Dr. Denning pictured above).
